Pygmy Globetrotters

Pygmy Globetrotters are Richard Owen and Ian Turley. “Pygmy Globetrotters, equal parts ‘Born Slippy’ era Underworld meets Crystal Castles” NME “Cutting-edge machine beats, on vibrating, subsonic bass riffs, spindly synth riffs and the dark, diseased imaginings of two boys cut off from it all, cast adrift 150 miles from the mundane, media mainstream” The Guardian
“Pygmy Globetrotters are using junk-shop keyboards and cheap laptops to offer a digital update of budget analogue pop.” The Sunday Times Magazine

Pocket Promise

Pocket Promise are an exciting multi-instrumental four piece based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Pocket Promise use guitars, pianos, keyboards and beat machines to capture a natural sound with twisting melodies and changes of pace and dynamic. Their style ranges from string accompanied haunting arrangements with layered vocals through to riff driven songs with infectious, overpowering choruses. Lyrics bring to mind images of heartache and fragility with carefree consequence and melancholic metaphor in equal measure.

http://www.myspace.com/leighstokesmusic Leigh Mary Stokes, as a song on her soon to be released debut E.P. suggests, is Skint. And yet somehow, in just 6 months, Leigh and her band have managed to record BBC radio play listed songs, land a UK tour with a national booking agent and attract serious label interest; all for the price of a bus journey home. Almost. Leigh writes infectious, emotive indie pop. BBC6 introducing has said simply ' Wow!'

Georgia Ruth Williams

In the twelve-or-so months since deciding to record her first demo in her Aberystwyth living room, Georgia Ruth has barely had time to stop. Gaining the support of Adam Walton (BBC Radio Wales), Huw Stephens (Radio 1, C2) and Lisa Gwilym (Radio Cymru), her unique hybrid of folk and blues found a new audience on Glastonbury's BBC Introducing Stage. A few months later, she was invited to record a live session at London's Maida Vale studios, for Radio 1's 'In New Music We Trust'.
